Senegal to produce 150,000 tons of potatoes in 2018
This output should enable the country to meet its local demand (95,000 tons) while increasing its exports at the same time.
Ecofinagency.com reports that during the start of the harvests, Macoumba Diouf, the national director of Horticulture said that this year, government’s subvention for the seed is CFA3.4 billion (5.18 mln euros) against CFA130 million (200,000 euros) in 2013.
The crop is mainly grown in Niayes, in the northwestern part of Senegal, which as a region is one of the five largest suppliers of potatoes in West Africa.
